During a cruise to celebrate our 30th anniversary, my husband and I visited St. George’s, Bermuda. We spent a wonderful day exploring the town and a gorgeous nearby beach.

Night

This post inspired by Frank at Dutch goes the Photo

The prompt: Night

On a solo week-away vacation in June 2006, I walked up and down Coronado Beach every day. Usually twice. Invigorating. Peaceful. Restorative.

Evening brought its own magic, as the sun set…showcasing palm trees, sand dunes and Point Loma in the distance.

Photo a Week – Shimmer

Nancy Merrill is hosting a photo challenge. The theme this week – Shimmer

IN A NEW POST CREATED FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE A PHOTO OR TWO (OR MORE) THAT SHIMMER.

 

Once again I am able to share a photo from my favorite beach. Taken during a solo vacation many years ago. Where I enjoyed warm weather, sunshine and long walks along the water’s edge. No schedule except for one of my choosing…including photo opportunities I couldn’t resist.
Sparkly sand. Sun. Water. Waves.

A more recent walk…not so warm. Early Spring in New England.
A local pond still holding a partial sheet of ice.
The late afternoon sun still doing its amazing thing…

Tuesday Photo Challenge – Layer

This post inspired by Frank at Dutch goes the Photo

The prompt: Layer

One very windy November afternoon in 2016…

Layer upon layer of loud angry waves crashed toward shore
Lining up one right after the other…
Relentless.

Matching rhythm with my steps
As I paced up and down the beach
That day.

Head down bracing for the gusts
As I pounded through the sand
Relentless.

Trying to make sense
Of the path ahead.
